Driven by the unmistakable look of a man in mourning, the sales attendant stood up in earnest with a look of pity as he got ready to take his orders of a funeral bouquet.

However, the attendant soon realized his assumptions were false, as the sad-faced man requested a basket of roses for his wife to mark their wedding anniversary.

The curious clerk asked:

"And what date will that be?"

The married couple had long been the cynosure of all eyes due to the absence of the usual marriage fights and scandals, and the curious reporter thought their love story worthy of the front covers.

To boost his story, he asked them the secret of their long-lasting and happy relationship even after years together. The wife divulged their secrets eagerly as she explained:

"Well, it dates back to our honeymoon. We visited the grand canyon and took a trip down to the bottom of the canyon by pack mule. We hadn't gone too far when my husband's mule stumbled. My husband quietly said, 'that's once.'"

The woman went further to narrate how the mule stumbled a second time and her husband's reaction. She continued:

"Once more, my husband quietly said, 'That's twice.'" 

A half-mile later, the mule stumbled a third time, and her husband brought out a pistol and shot it. The alarmed woman began to protest the ill-treatment of the animal, and the husband looked quietly at her and said:

"That's once."
